Posts of the Week! 1.3-9.2016

Hey guys! In case anyone was wondering, I am still very much addicted to Hamilton. I’m pretty sure I listened to “That Would Be Enough” at least 10 times in a single hour today, and I am still not even a little bit sick of it. So. Clearly, I have a problem, and clearly, I don’t care.

On to the posts!

Hello 2016! by Koko. In which she shares some awesome Bible verses that are very appropriate for the new year.

How to Brood by Heather. In which the velociraptor queen of writing humor gives us a step-by-step guide on a very important part of the writing process.

Confessions of a Book Drunkard by Ally. This one’s actually really self-explanatory. Also funny. With top-notch gif usage.

Confessions of Another Book Drunkard by Alison. See above, only this is a different book drunkard. I’m beginning to think it’s an epidemic. But a good one. Anyways.

6 Weeks Old by Erudessa. Because seriously, who doesn’t like cute puppy pictures?

Testing The Bechdel Test: Round Two, also by Heather. I’m not a hundred percent for the Bechdel test because I don’t think it accounts for all the variables that make a good story or a good female character, but Heather doesn’t pretend that it does, and I find this series very interesting and quite thought-provoking. You should read it. And then we can all talk about it.

This Revising Thing by Bailey. In which she talks about the woes of revising and also offers some sage advice.

Characters Wants vs. Character Needs by Mrs. Shannon Dittemore. Another thought-provoking post that I will spend a lot of provoked thought on. That probably made no sense, but anyway, it’s a great post for character development, I will be thinking a lot on it, and you should definitely read it.

How To Make Effective Writing Goals When Facing The Unknown by Mrs. Stephanie Morrill. Also self-explanatory and also containing some great tips. You never really know how life’s gonna go, and I think making goals the way she talks about in this post will save a some people (aka me) a lot of stress. :)

And that’s it for this week! Tell me, what do you think of the Bechdel Test? Have a book drunkard confession of your own? How do you go about revising your novels? Leave me a comment and let’s chat. :)

Also, quick announcement: I am taking a blogging break for the rest of the month of January. I love blogging so much, but it’s just become kind of stressful lately and I need some time to reorganize my schedule, figure out how I want to move forward this project, and how to get everything done as efficiently and stress-free-ly as possible. I will still be around, though, to comment on your blogs, so I won’t disappear completely; I just won’t be posting on Summer Snowflakes for the next couple of weeks. I WILL RETURN THOUGH. I PROMISE. I love blogging too much to leave it for too long. :)

Thank you for understanding, I love you all so much, and I hope to see you around the blogosphere. :)

  1. Alison loves Hamilton, but the song she had me listen to was a rap and I wasn't that into it. I went to your link, though, and I loved the song!

    Thanks for including our posts!

    1. That's fair. :) I'm a big fan of hip-hop, but not everybody's into it. And YAY!!!! So glad you enjoyed that one. :)

      No problem! :)

  2. :O Thanks for sharing two of my posts! :D I am glad I am being thought-provoking. ALSO I really liked Bailey's revisions post just because it was hilarious and reminded me of me slightly. Also, have a nice blogging break! I can understand that it gets way overwhelming, so I look forward to hearing from you again in February. :D
